Gelderland: More than half of the Mayors suffer from aggression

Fifty six percent of all mayors in the province of Gelderland have suffered from aggression in 2016.  The main aggression was scolding followed by threats and intimidation and in a small number of cases physical attacks.  One of the subjects which caused many incidents concerned financial cutbacks in caretaking of the elderly.  In addition, the problems of refugees and possible asylum seeker centers led to aggression. Not all threatened politicians complained to the police.
